Shahrukh Khan said, "I don't think the film has done as well as it should have. I am personally disappointed with that. To be honest, it has perhaps not done as well in India as I would like it to do. But overseas it has done very well in a lot of countries like Germany, Austria. It is quite thrilling that Indian films are reaching far and wide. There is a lot of business opportunities.''

introduced. It opens gates for more actors and actresses to look
at.'' However, the actor said, that he is not interested in doing
International cinema, "I am very happy making the films that I do.
I have made it clear many times earlier, I don't think I will foray
into it (international cinema).''
